Boulder Flood Relief Launched to Aid Colorado Flood Victims

In less than two weeks, BFR has built a volunteer database of over 3,000 individuals

A group volunteers called Boulder Flood Relief (BFR) has formed to mobilize and provide aid for Colorado flood victims who are still in need, according to an open letter to the cleaning and restoration industry from SteamMaster Restoration and Cleaning CEO Raj Manickam.

Boulder Flood Relief was started by veterans of the “occupy” movement and includes many University of Colorado at Boulder students. In less than two weeks, BFR has built a volunteer database of over 3,000 individuals. It has completed more than 150 volunteer-assisted projects, and is currently working in several neighborhoods based on requests and needs.

In the coming weeks, Boulder Flood Relief will continue to recruit and assign volunteers. As winter approaches, the need for support will intensify.  

Those interested in volunteering should:

·         See BFR’s Facebook page or Twitter @boulderflood and #boulderfloodrelief for news and announcements.

·         Sign up to volunteer at www.boulderfloodrelief.org.
